EBPV delete..WOW.

So for those of you thinking about deleting your EBPV and plugging your pedestal. DO IT. its so worth it. We removed and drilled out the rivets in the butterfly and then welded up the holes and we put a 1/4 pipe plug in the pedestal.
I must say the exhaust sounds so much cleaner now, not to mention while we were in there we threw on the ATS 1.0 exhaust housing, talk about happy truck. She feels like she can breathe better than ever. So to all you lazy people.. delete that pos EBPV. mine was sticking for months and i'm so glad its gone. never have to hear that noise again muchless have that thing in the exhaust stream..

Its worth it for the noise alone and honestly since I did the exhaust housing it opened up two things.. but seriously the turbo sounds so much cleaner with the straight pipe, and it feels good not to have that restriction in the exhaust, that thing likes to malfunction and caused me all kinds of trouble.

Its in the pipe that connects the turbo to the downpipe, if that makes sense. Not hard to do.

Dooooooo it. One of the best things I ever did to my truck. I can't comment on the sound though, cause when we did mine I also installed a wicked wheel in the turbo.

You can also go to a machine shop and get a freeze plug and put it in there. I got no clue what kinda difference this made because i had the motor rebuilt at the same time.

I deleted the flap out of my exhaust on my turbo. But, can I also delete the exhaust pressure valve and metal hose on the passenger manifold too?
If i do what code or problem would i get??? I have the motor on the stand getting it ready to put back in. Like to clean off all the unnecessary crap while i can.
